High exposure of the Amazon delta and estuary to sea level rise due to climate anomalies, combined with limited socio-economic capacities and access to financial support by smallholders living along the Marajó archipelago of Brazil, make the area and communities around it exceptionally vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. Further, saltwater intrusion threatens existing food systems fundamental to local poverty-struck communities already struggling to find adaptation methods with the limited resources at their disposal.

Fundación Avina aims to enhance the resilience of Marajo's smallholder communities by promoting and expanding diversified agroforestry systems (DAS). The project will focus on strengthening smallholder production, cultivating both subsistence and commercial agroforestry-based products. The project will contribute to local policy development, advocating for agroforestry-based systems as effective climate change adaptation tools. It aims to improve smallholders' access to markets for their agroforestry-based products, foster producer organisation through associations and cooperatives, and promote financial literacy, thereby enhancing their access to available financial resources such as the creation of a reserve fund.
